Our Staycation

We had the opportunity to go to Cibola Vista Resort for free for three days. The kids thought our resort room was our “new house” and were very upset when we left to go to dinner.PA170123 PA170130 PA170128 PA170127

During our little Staycation, we went to Cave Creek Museum (also free with Cultural pass from library),

Alexis was excited over this display and said “mommy look, a princess table” Apparently, pioneer women looked like princesses.

This is the flag when Arizona became the 48th state.

Lastly, on our way home we were supposed to enjoy a free breakfast, but sadly they didn’t open when we thought, and we had to leave before we could. All in all, it was a nice little break from reality. Once we get into a new house, we are hoping on going on another mini trip, hopefully by a beach!

Digital cameras and many photos are awesome. You have so many priceless memories you can watch the kids change from event to event. It sure beats the 3 or 4 pictures my parents had of me as a child. They will appreciate it along with you, when you look back over the years.
